I have either had great experiences with these service providers or have heard great things about them but, please, ALWAYS DO YOUR OWN DUE DILIGENCE before engaging anyone’s service.

Best Mobile Vets for Cats:
Cedar Grove Veterinary Housecalls
Dr. Juli and Dr. Jill
These women are amazing. They are experts at examining even extremely tough to handle cats. They are two very experienced vets who work together so the pet parent is never required to try to subdue his or her kitty. They are wonderful. They are also incredibly good with “end of life/euthanasia” issues. Professional yet deeply compassionate. I can’t recommend them strongly enough when it comes to this service, in particular. For both cats and dogs.
